VBA-M works in Windows 7 - spacy51 - 08-16-2009 06:51 AM

I did not expect otherwise anyhow Wink

Settings are now stored in "C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Roaming\VBA-M" for Vista. XP has a simliar structure.
File associations now work on a per-user basis with Vista and UAC enabled.

I just uploaded SVN888 to SourceForge.
I'd like to know if my current build environment breaks anything:
Windows 7 RTM x64
Visual C++ 2008 SP1
Windows 7 SDK RTM x64
DirectX SDK March 2009
OpenAL 1.1 SDK (ver 3.05)
NASM 2.07
zlib 1.2.3
libpng 1.2.39

can't say I like this change "Settings are now stored in "C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Roaming\VBA-M" for Vista. XP has a simliar structure." I believe in a truely portable vba-m now I know it will still work with the settings in the actual application folder itself but I work on VisualBoyAdvance-MPortable and well sad to say sometimes the launcher doesn't shutdown properly and settings get stuck in a place that isn't supposed to be in like C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Roaming\VBA-M, my suggestion is introduce something like a commandline -portable "path to settings file (IE) C:/vba-m or C:/Data/VBA-M" this would work better in the long run and will allow you to keep your idea but allow for a better setup for my project over at PortableApps.com

Don't dynamically link libpng, for some reason doing so has the screen capture function crash the emulator

SVN893: command line changes:

vba.exe --configpath YOURCONFIGPATHHERE

YOURCONFIGPATHHERE must not end with a \ character

Don't try to change positions, as I was not in the mood to write a full-fledged command line parser. And I hate string handling.

I know this thread is way out of date but if a user is stupid enough to put the emu into a protected folder like Documents or Program Files the change below (which is in all future VBA-M versions) causes problems cuz it remembers the original (protected) location when trying to create saves even once the emu has been moved to a neutral location in an attempt to get saving to work. It's best just to keep it in the folder same as before.
